THE SYLPH, by                 Poet's Biography
First Line: Seen not nor known
Last Line: Between two gowns!
Subject(s): Genius; Life; Smells; Odors; Aromas; Fragrances

Seen not nor known
I am the scent shed
Living and dead
In the wind blown

Seen not nor known
Genius or chance?
Hardly seed sown
When the flowers dance!

Nor read nor possessed!
What errors shown
For swift renowns—

Seen not nor known,
The glimpse of a breast
Between two gowns!
